Eastern Europe

Geographic History - Eastern Europe


Cartographer: Viktor Novikov, UNEP/GRID-Arendal

Eastern Europe through history. The region's borderline position has determined its many specific features. Neighbouring cultures deeply penetrated and influenced Eastern European societies, shaping contrasting developmental orientations. Eastern European lands changed hands many times in history and in some periods they were split between Western and Eastern powers. This is a glimpse of 4 periods between 1000 A.D. to 1938 A.D.
